Our trained staff can help alleviate pain from frozen shoulder.
We use our shoulders for all kinds of things from lifting items off a high shelf to brushing our teeth to reaching out and hugging our loved ones. Suffering from shoulder pain can have a serious impact on your life, but you don’t have to live with pain and limited mobility. One common shoulder condition that we can help treat here at East Gwillimbury Physiotherapy is frozen shoulder, which causes the cap tissue surrounding your shoulder joint to become inflamed and stiff.
Frozen shoulder is common in people who also have diabetes or have had to limit the movement of their shoulder in some way. One early warning sign that you may be developing frozen shoulder is a dull ache in your shoulder that intensifies when you move or lie down. You may also notice stiffness and lowered mobility that worsens over time.
The treatment for frozen shoulder can vary depending on its severity, the age and physical condition of the patient, and other health or lifestyle factors. When you seek treatment for frozen shoulder at our office, we take the time to fully understand the extent of the injury and formulate a plan that is tailored to provide optimum healing and pain relief for your unique situation. We may recommend manual therapy, specialized exercises, stretches to improve mobility, and certain lifestyle changes to promote healing. You’ll be seen one-on-one for each appointment, so there’s no competing with other patients for your physiotherapist’s attention or risk of being handed off to an assistant.
